• We group your child with swimmers of similar abilities as we recognise that children start their journey with us possessing varying levels of skills and water confidence irrespective of age
  • Our levels start with building water confidence in children and step them progressively through introduction, development, refinement and finally consolidation of all four competitive strokes and skills
  • All of our lessons incorporate a component of water safety. In addition, each term we provide a level specific water safety week to educate your child on surviving in and around water
  • We introduce students to the sport of swimming with opportunities to participate in skill sessions with our competitive squad coaches and carnivals based on participation and fun
  • Progression through our levels is based on ability and students are moved up when they are ready during the term

For children who are 5 years or older and attending school. Our program has been carefully designed to allow your child to become the best swimmer they can be. School age programs run at both Aqualink Box Hill and Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club. If you are interested in lessons at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, one family member must be a current registered member. Our Kooyong program is suitable for school-age children that are comfortable in 1.0 m pool depths.
